MONROE - A Monroe father is facing charges after police say he accidentally shot his 10-year-old son.

Police say Vincent Pizzolato, 44, accidentally pulled the trigger of his gun when he was putting it away last week.

They say the bullet went through a wall and hit his son in the cheek. 

Pizzolato turned himself in on a reckless endangerment and assault with a firearm warrant yesterday.

The boy is expected to be OK.
